I made these for the Super Bowl Party we attended. The won-tons attended the game but were not available for comment after halftime as they had mysteriously vanished.

Directions

  1. Make sure shrimp are veined and cleaned, remove all shells; chop the shrimp meat up. Mix together first 10 ingredients (Shrimp through Garlic Powder) to make a shrimp marinade. Remember to dice the shrimp up small as this will make packing the won-tons easier. Marinade for about 30 minutes.
  2. Mix together the next 9 ingredients (Broccoli-Slaw through Pepper) to create the slaw mix. Broccoli-Slaw comes shredded but remember to chop it up smaller; also really dice the onions, celery and croutons (crushed) up so they will be easy to pack into the won-tons.
  3. After the shrimp has marinaded for 30 minutes mix both shrimp and slaw bowls together. Stir.
  4. Lay out the won-tons and carefully spoon a little of the stuffing mixture into each wrapper, about 1/2 tablespoon per won-ton. Don't over stuff them. Brush all of the the won-ton edges with water or egg white to seal them. Fold square wrapper into a triangle and carefully press the edges. Now pull the bottom 2 forks together to finish the won-ton (there are directions on folding inside most won-ton packaging). Make sure the edges are not open or leaking stuffing or the won-ton will fall apart while cooking. Set aside rare won-tons on a plate as you finish folding the other wrappers, they will stiffen up and be easier to handle in a few minutes.
  5. Heat oil on med high in a large pan. Fry batches of won-tons in oil for about 2 minute per side, you will see them brown up, flip to the other side and remove when done. Dry the won-tons on paper towels. Serve Warm.
